A lazy afternoon

Emily and I enjoyed our meal at Prezzos - we both love their food and it's always a pleasure to go and eat there. While we were waiting for our meal to arrive we took a couple of photos
Emily's self portrait - you can tell she's had a lot of practice
Emily decided to take a photo of me and because of the way the light was coming in decided this was my angelic pose lol!!
The rest of the afternoon just seemed to slip by, we did a bit of shopping in town and then headed home. This evening we watched the first of a new dating programme on ITV, not sure what I think of it yet, I'll give it another week before making a decision.
Tonight I've decided I have to get to bed a bit earlier and, likewise, get up earlier in the morning otherwise Monday morning is going to be a real struggle! I can't believe the school holidays are nearly over already. Once Emily is back at school it'll be time for me to start some decluttering! For now though, time for bed!

DYL Digital Layouts

This year I'm joining in Cathy Zielske's Design Your Life class as an Alumni. My motivation for joining was the digital templates she's providing and this morning, I've been playing around with the ones for Week 1. I'm not going to stick to the colours for the RWC layouts but rather just use what I've got and play around. Digital scrapbooking is still very new to me but I do like how quickly you can get a layout done :o) (You can click on the photos to read the journaling) In this layout the red dotted paper is K.Pertiet's Spot Dots No 17.
The striped paper is a left over strip of some Imaginisce paper I had in my stash.
Font for Title: Fling LET
This layout is about Emily at 13.
Blue paper is J. Sprague Echoes of Asia - Blue Floral
Emily and I are now popping in to town for lunch. Prezzo's are having one of their meal deals at the moment and seeing as I usually take her out for a meal during her school holidays (and schools go back on Monday) we've decided to go today.
